Winter at Sugarbush
Best Ski Town in the East
Six distinct peaks of unleashed potential. Two uncrowded mountain areas. And 2,000 acres of backcountry in the Slide Brook Basin. It’s no surprise Sugarbush recently ranked #1 in Terrain Variety by SKI magazine and the area was named “Best Ski Town in the East” by Outside Magazine.
Lincoln Peak Base Area
At the heart of Sugarbush is Lincoln Peak—think quintessential Vermont meets modern slopeside living. Here you’ll find the majority of Sugarbush terrain with classic New England trails leading to the nascent Lincoln Peak Village which includes Clay Brook slopeside hotel and residences, a general store, casual and elegant dining, and the new Schoolhouse and Farmhouse. The Schoolhouse is home base for all children’s day ski-and-ride programs, and The Farmhouse hosts Sugarbush’s acclaimed Ski & Ride School which includes the first-timer-to-life-timer program, private and group lessons, backcountry tours, bumps clinics and more.
Mt. Ellen Base Area
A casual feel speaks to the ski bum in all of us—but don’t let that fool you. Mt. Ellen is home to Vermont’s highest chairlift, a rippin’ terrain park, and a variety of woods and bump terrain. We think of it as our “hidden gem.”
The Only Cat Skiing in the East
Sugarbush’s Lincoln Limo is a twelve-person luxury snow cat that’s unique in the East. Ride it up for fireside dinners at Allyn’s Lodge, take the family for a sunset groomer ride, catch powder-day first tracks, or assemble a crew for private spring skiing adventures at Mt. Ellen.
